Pius I, pope (158-167). He is said to have been born at Aquileia and to have been the son of a certain Rufinus; it is added that he suffered martyrdom, but, although he is celebrated as a martyr in the Breviary, there seems no other evidence for this assertion. A few letters extant under his name are spurious.


fro the 9th edition (1885) of an unnamed encyclopedia.

preceded by Pope Hyginus (136-140)
succeeded by Pope Anicetus (155-166)
